Kiawah Island provides the perfect backdrop for families, and upon arriving at their Timbers Kiawah home, families can immediately embrace a slower, more relaxed pace of life.

With multiple generations returning to create cherished memories on this beautiful island time and time again, Timbers Kiawah is family-friendly through and through.

In this coastal paradise where everything is effortless and unhurried, the whole family can rest and reconnect, because sometimes the simple moments are the most treasured of all.


Children are welcomed everywhere and known to run around barefoot all day long. Moving from the pool, to the Beach Club, to the Timbers Tykes Room, then out to the beach, and back again. Children flourish through a wide array of outdoor and indoor activities, often forming long-lasting friendships in the process!


For families who love spending time in the great outdoors, Kiawah Island offers plenty of opportunities to explore. Take a family bike ride through the island’s scenic trails, go kayaking or paddle boarding on the water, or take a nature walk to see the island’s abundant wildlife up close.

And of course, there’s nothing quite like a day spent soaking up the sun at our oceanfront pool or exploring Kiawah’s 10 miles of beautiful beaches. Enjoy endless opportunities of sun-soaked fun, from beach combing for treasures to building sandcastles and simply embracing a more leisurely way of living.


Timbers Kiawah is only a five- minute bike ride from Freshfields Village, where you can treat your family to a delicious ice cream from Ben and Jerry’s or take some time to peruse Indigo Books for some great finds to enjoy in the shade.

Offering family-friendly concerts and events, plus activities ranging from kids’ yoga to candle-making and dog shows throughout the year, it truly is the hub of the Kiawah Island community.

With plenty of sunny days, a laid-back setting, and unlimited activities, there’s something for everyone to enjoy at Timbers Kiawah.
